Method 1 of 1: Examples

Here are some possibilities: What to respond if he (a)…

Talking bad about you behind your back: “If you have something to say, speak in front of me”

- If he (a) is silent or explains that he has nothing to say: “Oh, so you can talk about me behind my back, but not in front of me? Know that I'm not afraid of you.” or fine. I don't care what you say, but I won't like it if others believe you. If that happens, I won't be quiet!” (and stop arguing).

Call it something offensive: "Why do you think that?"

- If he (a) doesn't answer: “Oh, you called me that but you don't even know why? You shouldn't be so ignorant.”

Saying that is better than you: “Are you better than me? Why do you need to talk bad about me? That's your way that needs to change. If you say that about people, it's because you're arrogant.”

If someone calls you…

- Loser: “Even if I were a loser, you wouldn't have the right to call me that. But seeing as how you've wasted your time talking bad about me, I think we both know who's better."

- A curse word: “You know, I don't go around calling people that because it's short and not my type. Just saying something like that about someone shows how ignorant you are and how classless you are. Please, you don't even know what that means."

- Waste of time: “If I'm a waste of time, why are you still talking to me? Looks like you spent a lot of time talking bad about me out there. You should mind your own business.”

- End the discussion: “I have more important things to do than worry about what you think of me. What you are doing is very wrong. You are arrogant and don't care about anyone. It's not human. I'm full of it. I won't waste my time anymore. I'm better than that, because I know that insulting others just shows how ignorant the insulter is." This will show the person that you are smarter.


  • To improve, keep your voice calm, your posture upright, and your eyes straight.
  • Be sincere and honest. If you lie, you will be discovered and, consequently, ridiculed.
  • Be patient. We are not always able to give a good answer right away. If you don't know how to respond, speak slowly and slowly. If you can't come up with a good answer quickly, take time to think about what to say. Getting an ideal response at the tip of your tongue takes effort and practice.


  • Don't keep repeating things!
  • Don't raise your voice. You must look wiser.
